Apistogramma cacatuoides WILD


Some species of fish are very popular in the aquarium hobby. Many of them are kept
only as sports or breeding forms that do not exist in the wild and most aquarists are
completely unaware how the wild form looks like. One of these species is the very
popular dwarf cichlid Apistogramma cacatuoides. The species occurs in the Amazon
basin of Brazil, Colombia, and Peru between 69°W and 71°W and is imported only


The wonderful A. cacatuoides we currently have in stock have been imported from Peru.
Although they look rather drab compared with their selective-bred cousins and their
mainly red finneage, the wild ones impress with the stout body and gorgeous dorsal
fin. By the way: the black clusters of pigment are not inherited, but can be found in
wild collected specimens only. It is said that they result from recovered diseases in
the wild. May that be as it is, it is a fact that the black clusters are completely

For our customers: the fish have code 617204 on our stocklist. Please note that we
exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Apistogramma: ancient Greek, means "with unreliable line". It is not known
wether the lateral line organ or the pattern is meant. cacatuoides: means "looks like
a cockatoo". The author of the species was reminded by the dorsal fin of the males in
the hood of an cockatoo.

Parotocinclus jumbo, LDA 25, Pitbull Pleco 


The import season for this charming algae killer has started. Parotocinclus jumbo is
both one of the largest species of the genus (maximum size is reported to be around
6-7 cm!) and one of the prettiest. Astonishingly there is so far no report in the
aquarium literature on the very obvious sexual dichromatism found in this species.
Males get wonderful shining, blueish-green saddles on the back which are missing in
females. Besides this the females are much more plump than the males.


There are some spawning reports on the species. It seems to have an positive effect
if a rainy season is simulated as it is found in many Corydoras species. Practically
speaking this means large waterchanges with cooler and softer water than the water
used for regular keeping. However, the temperature difference should not be too big,
about 5°C are suitable.


The fish does not practice brood care in any way. The eggs are sticky and become
attached on the glasses or tank equipment - again here are many parallels to
Corydoras. It is reported that raising the spawn is rather difficult and that the
eggs tend to get fungus.

For our customers: the fish have code 26480-LDA 025-3 on our stocklist. Please note
that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Parotocinclus: ancient Greek, means "alike Otocinclus"; Otocinclus is
another genus of catfish. jumbo: refers to the unusual size of the species compared
with other members of the genus.

Corydoras sp. Neon Goldstripe, CW 10 


There are many attractive and desirable species of Corydoras, but one would hardly
describe many of the about 300 species known so far as colourful. One of the very few
really colourful Corydoras is the scientifically still undescribed species Corydoras
sp. Neon Goldstripe, that we were able to import again in larger numbers now from
Peru. The fish is known in the trade also as "Peru-Goldstripe" or under the code CW

The splendid fish reach a length of about 6 cm. They are absolutely peaceful
schooling fish which can be kept even by beginners. However, the fantastic shining
stripe over the back looks best in so-called black water. Successful breeding has
been reported quite often, but the species is not very productive. The eggs are
moreover quite small.

For our customers: the fish have code 221073 on our stocklist. Please note that we
exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Corydoras: from ancient greek, means "with helmet and spear". This refers to
the strong armor and fin spines.
